there was last night. like there was this exchange on the military. >> you don't cut defense by $1 trillion. that's what we're talking about. this invites weakness. look, do we believe in peace through strength? we bet you t you bet we do. >> devastating cuts on our military. when paul ryan condemns defense cuts as a nefarious democratic idea that he is fighting vali t valiantvalian valiantly against he did not mention he voted in favor of those exact same defense cuts. also on the issue of medicare, i mean, maybe it's been said enough now that it doesn't need to be said every time, but once again at the debate paul ryan pounded his chest and criticized democrats for a change in medicare funding that he's denouncing on the campaign trail. last night as a $716 billion cut to medicare. well, that's a cut to medicare that he put in his loan paown pn budget. you can be before that thing or against that thing but cannot simultaneously be for that thing and against that thing not if we're supposed to take you seriously on policy which is supposedly the whole idea of you. which brings us to the issue o
of defense and the national security council. prior to becoming chairman, he served briefly as the army's 37th chief of staff. general dempsey is a bit of an unexpected appointment. he had just been sworn in as the army chief of staff a couple of months prior, but when the nomination process for another candidate stalled, general dempsey was called to serve a grateful nation, and he has done so with distinction. since taking the chairman's job a year ago, the 37-year army veteran has made headlines by dealing with the infamous quran-burning pastor by calling him up and asking him to withdraw his support for the anti-muslim video that sparked protests across the middle east. he expressed disappointment over the navy seal who published an unauthorized account of the killing of osama bin laden. he said an israeli attack on iran would clearly delay but probably not destroy iran's nuclear program. he has stressed the need to retool the military for a postwar world with smaller pentagon budgets, and most recently he has spoken about the need to turn up the volume on ways to help war veterans reint
. here is joe biden calling ryan out -- i think this is on the defense cuts. >> we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that done when we equivocate on our values -- >> bill: get in there. >> they are much more willing to test us. >> with all due respect that's a bunch of mularkey because everything he said was not true. >> bill: paul ryan came across as inexperienced and very very nervous. did you notice how many times he kept sipping water, like get me out of here. obviously a lot of his lines were rehearsed. he was not natural or uncomfortable at all. ryan said, mitt romney is a car guy. yeah, his father was the head of a car company, but he wanted detroit to die. >> to be fair mitt romney is a car guy. he has so many cars he needs an elevator for them. >> bill: and he said let me tell you about mitt romney he helped people who were injured in a car crash. and basically joe biden turned to him and said don't talk to me about car crashes, buddy. my wife and son were killed in a car crash. so ryan didn't have such a good night
,000 a year and couples making more than $250,000 a year. and number three, there was biden's defense of the hhs contraception mandate. >> no religious institution, catholic or otherwise, including catholic social services, georgetown hospital, mercy hospital, any hospital, none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. that is a fact. >> laura: false. today the u.s. conference of catholic bishops rebuked the vice president noting that the so-called accommodation, the obama administration promised for catholic hospitals, universities, and other religious charities isn't an accommodation at all. they will all still serve as a vehicle for contraception, abore that face drugs and sterilizations because their health insurance premiums still will cover those services. now, ryan himself had some difficulty on the foreign policy questions and allowed, i think, the moderator to cut him off too easily. without a doubt, joe biden's demeanor and his mendacity made him both less likeabl
will see dramatic cuts to the military. the secretary of defense says these would be devastating. i will not cut our commitment to our military. i will keep america strong and get america's middle class working again. thank you, jim. >> jim: thank you, governor. thank you, mr. president. the next debate will be the vice-presidential event on thursday, october 11 at center o'clock in danville, kentucky. for now, from the university of denver, i'm jim lehrer. thank you and gbts. ooh thank you and good night. [cheers and applause] did >> 90 minutes later. it was a robust debate, in the team jerseys, governor rom f >>> president obama in the blue. t romney landing a number of jabs on the president from everything from debt and jobs his green g economy toealt energy program and saying, americans republican and and democrat need leadership and he is prepared to provide it.ovid the president keeping his cool which was said by the punditsbe to be one of the challenges for him tonight and saying leadership requires more than just lofty goals, it requires specifics and he didn't see see them
explain it. in my defense, the apes wanted me to do that so i did it. they told me they wanted me to do it. how? i can't even begin to explain and i did not have to smear anything on myself. that's a plus. because really, it's all about maintains one's dignity. that does it for us. see you again one hour from now. another edition of "360" at 10:00 eastern. "piers morgan tonight" starts now. >>> tonight, game on. the new mitt romney now in the lead. a confident candidate, a major speech. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east but hope is not a strategy. >> plus, neck and neck. sometimes it is about the horse race. to the man who arguably knows more than anyone about what the numbers in this race mean, nate silver. and battleground america. is romney gaining ground with female voters? women on the left and right go toe to toe. also, worldwide exclusive. what you haven't heard about the man who shot trayvon martin, the first television interview with george zimmerman's mother. why he says there's more to the story. >> he said you will die tom
, a total sham. and moreover, governor romney also proposes a $2 trillion defense increase. now, if you want to do that, you think there's a case for it, and some of the military people are wrong. they need it. then you at least ought to say how you're going to pay for it. >> howard? >> hey, joe? >> the fascinating thing about all this is the positioning. now, i actually disagree with joe on raising the entitlement age. i don't have a problem with raising the age on social security because i agree with you actuarily. raising the age on medicare is really a bad idea. it's the one thing that would make me not support simpson-bowles if i were in the congress because medicare is a health insurance program. it isn't about an entitlement. it's about figuring out how to get everybody health insurance. the one program we have that covers everybody that's universal is medicare. why would you want to raise the age on medicare? but i agree with you on social security and the other entitlements. we cannot continue to have this kind of level of entitlement spending if we're going to balance the budget. b
pedophile and former defensive coordinator is speaking out from jail. he was convicted in june of sexually abusing ten boys over 15 years and tomorrow he will find out whether he'll spend the rest of his life behind bars. but today, in an extraordinary move, sandusky released a statement in his own words which aired on penn state radio. he denies the abuse, blames the victims and proclaims his love for his wife. you've really got to hear this. to even try and believe it. >> in my heart, i know i did not do these alleged disgusting acts. my wife has been my only sex partner and that was after marriage. our love continues. the young man whose dramatic, veteran accuser and always sought attention started everything. he was joined by a well orchestrated effort of the media, investigators, the system, penn state, psychologists, civil attorneys and other accusers. they won. i've wondered what they really won. attention, financial gain, prestige will all be temporary. >> and on and on he whines in similar vein. frankly, that's enough for me. i don't have the stomach for any more of this and i'm s
there will be to pin ryan down on defense, and prevent him from talking about the things he knows best, which are medicare, taxes and financial stuff, the sort of things that romney opened up for him in that initial debate. romney unlocked paul ryan to a certain extent and now he can leverage him if ryan can get the space to talk about it in the debate. >> paul: mary. >> i think what you can expect from paul ryan, he will repeat over and over again, the 716 billion dollars in medicare cuts that obama is putting on people who are right now relying on medicare. and he will show, he will try to show that his plan will actually save medicare while obama will destroy it. i think that's his greatest edge and that's where he's going to go. >> paul: he's got a delicate task because i think he has to defend, jason, i think he has to defend romney against what will be biden's task even as he turns around and tries to go after the president's agenda while showing his own competence on substance, on these issues, that's a more complicated taste and biden is basically going to be all in assaulting romney.
. the hokies' defense not prepared for this. one of two big runs for bernard on the day. 62 yards here to the end zone. unc wins 48-34. virginia tech has lost back-to-back games. stra tech hokies now 3-3. it's the first home victory for the tarheels over virginia tech since 1938. >> whoa! that's a long stretch. >> that's a long time. >> howard did win tonight 17-10. we have to add that score over florida a&m. >> almost as long as we've seen since the nats in the playoffs. >>> that's our news for tonight. "saturday night live" is next with james bond. have a great night, everyone. >> good evening from the magnus arena at the university of denver in denver, colorado. i'm jim lehrer, anchor of the pbs news hour on your local public broadcasting station. thank you
was tuned in. he answered, he gave his side. he gave his defense. the obama -- the other night in this debate -- it was almost like there were two channels going in his mind, one on the debate and answering in the way he did, which just didn't fit together. and then when he was looking down, it's almost like something else was deeply worrying him. now, i don't know that. the point is, you know, why would he be so out of it in clearly one of the most important political moments of his life? >> sean: it is a really good question. i think -- i think he was shocked because mitt romney looked him dead in the eye, was very deep in the facts. i mean, it was just the opposites of john mccain, in the mccain debate, obama was looking mccain in the eye and mccain looking down or out at the crowd. very different in terms of the body language. on substance, romney was very knowledgeable, across the board, every question and was willing to take the president on. i don't think he is used to that? >> now, it's possible that obama realized what romney was doing and that's what troubled him. and
satellites or defense purposes, but you need the government to go beyond there. i don't think private enterprise, people talk about going to mars on private space ships, but it costs so mu money. to go to mars would cost several hundred billion dollarsuric i don't see a business plan tham ma that makes it worthwhile. i suspect it's the government and i suspect may happen will be what happened in the 1960s. what will drive it will not be science, not cold war, but prestige. if china sends astronauts to the moon, i'm certain we'll quickly make sure we have astronauts there as well. >> you do see there have been good things that come from space exploration as we know it? >> oh, yeah, absolutely. i think the really good things have come from unmanned space exploration. you look great sitting in an anchor's desk, but you're not really meant for space. you're a 100-pound bag of water and it's much better to send a robot. i'm so excited when i see the curiosity rover on mars. i look for the photographs, and frankly, i'm more excited by that than if a human was there because if a human was th
force academy so from time to time the media will focus on it. the de the department of defense will wring the hands and say, oh, yes, we have a problem, but then when the media stops paying attention, nothing has been done. no structural reforks, and it is the structure and the way in which they have people report that is the problem. they allow the chain of command, and now that sounds like a hierarchy and sounds like that is a lot of people, but what you are actually talking about is empowering one human being, one individual to unilaterally shut down the investigation and prosecution of rape. because of that structure, there is a series underprosecution. you know, only a fraction and less than 10% ever get prosecuted an convicted, and of that, far less are actually convicted of rape and they reduce the charges to things like adultery. >> and susan, we did reach out to the department of defense and we were told that secretary panetta has repeatedly stated that there is no place for sexual assault at the military tor department of defense, and sexual assault is an affront to b
. not a nuclear weapon, but a cyber attack. the secretary of defense says it could create havoc across the country. more now from nbc's pentagon correspondent jim miklaszewski. >> reporter: it's predicted that cyberspace will become the world's next major battlefield. but in a national call to arms, defense secretary leon panetta warned the threat of a significant cyber attack against america is already here. >> the collective results of these kinds of attacks could be a cyber pearl harbor. >> reporter: panetta warned that cyber attackers have tried to shut down america's critical infrastructure, power, water, transportation, and major financial institutions. >> such a destructive cyber terrorist attack could virtually paralyze the nation. >> reporter: while russia and china are prime suspects, for the first time, u.s. officials blame iran for the recent jump in cyber attacks. defense officials tell nbc news iran was behind a recent series of attempts to disable the websites of several major u.s. banks. those attacks failed. but another iranian cyber attack nearly shut down saudi arabia's state oi
's look at the two really interesting categories. so defense, ryan and obama actually pretty much agree, they both want to spend about $5.5 trillion on defense over the next ten years. romney wants to spend $7.8 trillion on defense over the next ten years. so that kind of blows a hole in his budget. >> let me stop you right there. so we obviously, in the republican party, we have a bit of a battle between the realists and the neocons. the realists want to bring the spending down a bit more, agree with admiral mullen that one of the greatest risks we face when it comes to security is the debt over the long run. there is another faction of the republican party, and it appears that mitt romney is a part of that faction of neocons that believe that we need to keep spending an awful lot. >> look, we want to have the preeminent military in the world and we do and we're going to. you look at procurement programs like the joint strike fighter. the notion that there is not money to save in the pentagon budget, that it is not a bloated bureaucracy in many, many areas is just crazy. >> that's righ
prisoners and stop killing civilians. that's not expected to happen before today's deadline. >>> defense secretary leon panetta says a thank you instead of criticism would be welcome for afghan president hamid karzai for the sacrifices american troops have made. his remark followed karzai's accusation that the u.s. isn't doing enough to fight terror in neighboring pakistan. relations between the u.s. and afghanistan have steadily been eroding in recent months. >>> other stories making headlines around the world now. first at the vet can where pope benedict's former butler was just sentenced to 18 months in prison for leaking confidential papers. paulo gabriel was convicted this morning of left. the book, based on his leaked papers, revealed possible corruption in the catholic church hierarchy. gabriel told the court he leaked the papers out of love for the church and didn't field like a thief. >>> and in india american football is the new sport hoping to gain pop logan airport. the new league is made of teams from india, pakistan and sri lanka. they have names like the delhi defenders. s
, they probably fired it. did the israeli defense system work? it worked. >>eric: you are the israelis, you watching what is going on, was there anything political about releasing that video? >>guest: from the timing of israel going to release it right before an election? i don't think so. the point that israel has the ability to shoot down the drone, and the ability to defend itself and it shows you can do it. >>eric: i will leave it there. president obama's campaign releasing new fundraising numbers for the reelection and they are eye popping but raising eyebrows where some of the president's donations have been coming from. jack, you're a little boring. boring. boring.

, we did reach out to the department of defense and we were told that secretary panetta has repeatedly stated that there is no place for sexual assault at the military tor department of defense, and sexual assault is an affront to bay sick human values and it is a crime that hurts the survivors and the friends and the families and the unit, and in turn, sexual assault reduce overall military readiness. i'm curious, because we have been told of course that they are taking the steps to fight the problem, i with include all sorts of things, including establishing a special victims' unit, but is all of this enough, to you think? >> no, sadly. i don't question secretary panetta's good faith, and i'm sure he is appalled like i am when you look at the issue, but what is happening is the same thing in the past. they have not tackled the core issue, the structure. so we as americans are all sbited to an impartial ajudicatory process, but the men and women like kole who are brave enough to defend us don't get that. they get a system that is slanted. >> kole, i want to ask you quickly, how are yo
believes in peace through strength. president obama is going to be presiding over $1 trillion in defense cuts. this will further weaken our standing in the world, and embolden our adversaries even more. so you'll here governor romney talk about his foreign policy sreufgs a vision at the virginia military institute in a few moments. bill: part of the reason we brought you on today is we want to get a preview of how he is going to make a distinction between his policies, if he were president, and the policies of the past four years. what is the clearist difference, eric? >> instead of leading from behind, which is the slogan of the obama administration's foreign policy, governor romney will restore the doctrine of peace through strength, which has guided our presidents, both republican and democrat, since the end of world war ii, and specifically governor romney will reverse the devastating $1 trillion in defense cuts that president obama is presiding over. he'll reform foreign assistance to promote good governance and other positive outcomes and he'll stand resolutel b rest resolute tee w
to have legs. that and cultural issues such as abortion. >> it seemed like the congressman was on defense on the issue of taxing the rich. the best he could say listening to him closely was, it won't be enough if you tax the rich to balance the budget. everybody knows that's a ludicrous assessment. the need to tax the rich has a lot to do with basic fairness in our society as well as fiscal balance. >> well, i think that was among -- i think joe biden was very strong on all of the talking points and issues that you and i and everybody else said the president didn't hit last week. joe biden hit every one of those marks. in talking to russ, one of the top media advisers for media campaign right after the debatd, he said to me, yeah, joe biden made all the points. he said -- then he went on to criticize biden's style saying he was too hot, saying he was like al gore, et cetera. when you have one of romney's people conceding that the vice president made his talking points, i think that's significant. on taxes, yes, except that ryan had one very good comeback, chris. it was a sound bite line w
